  1. Hello ladies and gentlemen, if you didn't already know by the thousands of reminders in the shoutbox, IT'S MAH BERTHDEY. So, I figured the best way to celebrate would be to write a review to please your eyes and brain. So sit back, relax, and let's dive into the box office dinosaur known as Jurassic World! There will be minor spoilers, but if you haven't seen the movie, don't worry too much. You're not going into this for the story, you and I both know that. No, you're going to see Jurassic World for two things: Nostalgia, and DINO WARS. So, let's talk about the film's story a bit, since we're on the subject. The film begins following the tale of two brothers going to visit their aunt, who helps run the new and improved park. Chris Pratt plays a raptor trainer who is probably the best part of this movie, but that might just be because he's Chris bloody Pratt. Basically, the park has begun to dip in ratings, so they decide it'd be a fantastic idea to genetically engineer a new dinosaur, made up of many species. Of course, this backfires, and we have our plot. Now, is the plot believable? Not in any way. Is it fun to watch? Absolutely. It entertains me to watch dinosaurs chew into people and just cause chaos. Not every film needs to be an art-house philosophical journey. Not discounting the greatness of those films, however. Jurassic World's plot basically works for what they are trying to convey. So, how is the action and CGI? To me, a lot of the CGI work was very well done and the animatronics were a nice touch. The fighting is what tops this movie off though, it's so cheesy and fun to watch dinosaurs fight dinosaurs, dinosaurs fight humans, etc. I'm going to mention one action scene here, but don't worry, no real spoilers. Eventually, they chase down this genetically engineered dinosaur to a pterodactyl enclosure WITH A HELICOPTER AND A MACHINE GUN. They just rip through the dinosaur but it manages to break into the enclosure and the pterodactyls SWARM the helicopters, like getting stuck in the rotors and all that jazz. You watch as the helicopter EXPLODES and it's just beauty. The next scene after is even better, but I won't spoil it for you. Acting and directing, you say? Well, it's really a mixed bag. I mean, you have fantastic actors like Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard who light up the screen with their passion and you can truly see they ENJOY the role. But then you've got Vincent D'onofrio and the two brothers who feel SO PHONED IN it's truly disappointing. Again, I don't expect Whiplash or Dawn of the Planet of the Apes level acting, but come the hell on. Directing is fine, I'm not really a critic in this area, I wouldn't know too well. So what was my overall opinion on Jurassic World? I felt that it was a criminally underrated pop-corn flick that will be extreme fun to watch every now and then. It's a better Jurassic Park than Lost World and III, that's for sure. Chris Pratt and the movie's action are really where it shines it's brightest, and it's dinosaurs are certainly a delight to watch on screen. I think this movie can really been a great time for some friends who just wanna go see a fun film about dinosaurs tearing up a park. And the last 30+ minutes are some of the best movie moments I've ever seen. It's certainly not going to win an Oscar for best film, but as far as action movies go, it's a killer time. For my movie ratings, I use an F-A+ system, F being the worst, and A+ being the best, and anything inbetween being, y'know, inbetween. I give Jurassic World an: B+
  2. Hello there, thanks a lot for clicking this thread, I'm Hayley Kenway, or Edward Kenway, or Omega, really, I'm known by a lot of different aliases, so just call me Ed. I'd like to begin by stating my sincerest gratitude to all of you for carrying me to where I am today, as a member of the News Group on a wonderful site full of wonderful people (not as wonderful as me though). So, do you really need the life story again? I'll give you the TL;DR version, I suppose. I'm Vincent, been here for 3 years, not all of it perfect but most of it unforgettable. At the moment, I'm 13, going on 14 in a few days (July 6th to be exact). I recently graduated my catholic schooling institute, and am going to a public high school, with the hopes of transferring next year to a school more aligned with my interests. And yes, I am an atheist. I'm the youngest staff member at the moment, and am the youngest person to receive Legendary, to my knowledge. I'm a fan of a wealth of gaming franchises, and if I listed them all here, you'd be sitting here til' my fourth anniversary. I currently own an Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, and Gaming PC, with the plans to purchase some sort of Nintendo product soon. As can be seen, I'm what you would call a 'Pokemon gamer', I like to catch and collect 'em all. Recently I've begun to take interest in films and I'm a huge fan of the Planet of the Apes movies, especially Dawn and Rise. I'm also a big fan of comic book movies, specifically Batman and Spider-Man. I'm also interested in books quite a bit, the full nerd package, and I love Eleanor & Park, but by next year, I'm sure I'll have found some new book to obsess over. I'll keep this short, but most of you know my origins. I started out as SpartanKIL, became Omega, went through some troubles, and like a phoenix, Edward Kenway rose from the ashes and became as good a positive influence as he could. However, during my time in News Group, I made the decision to leave, becoming Legendary for a month (lol) which I get teased about pretty often. THEN I CAME BACK. I grovelled on my knees in front of Director, and he saw pity on me and gave me my job back. I still need a raise though. Family life, you ask? Well, I have parents, as does everyone, and two sisters, whom I don't interact with much. Alongside these people, I live with my grandfather, who recently came out of the hospital, so that's good, it's nice to see him these days. You may remember I mentioned living with an aunt and uncle whom I rarely saw, well err... Not exactly anymore. Last September, just a few days before the launch of Destiny, which I eagerly awaited, my Uncle passed away. Just a few weeks ago, my Aunt had also left to go pursue new ventures in life, putting it nicely. I miss him a lot, he was really the driving passion for my nerdy interests, so losing him felt a lot like losing a part of me. But, on the positive side of things, my dad left the hospital, and he's doing okay, so... There's that. Now, this may seem a bit sappy, but I want to take a moment to acknowledge my best of friends on here. These are some truly amazing people who have shined quite a bright light in my life that won't go away. Be aware, these are just the best of the best, so fret not if you aren't on here. I love everyone, as I've said, but I have to take a minute to acknowledge those I feel have gone out of their way for me. Yoshi1176 - Hey man, you're a really great friend toward me, and I wanted to acknowledge you first for it. There have been friends, many of them, despite your disbelief. But you have stood out quite a bit as that one dude who really has fun being around me. And in the end, that's my only goal, to make sure everyone around me has a bit of fun. If I can't light up people's lives, then I'm wasting my own. Yang Xiao Long - Yaaaaang, my British friend that I tell everyone I know about to seem cooler. Destiny has been a huge part of my daily routine and you've been there for a lot of my progression through the game. You were there when I got my G-Horn, you were there when I first dared to fight Crota, and the countless times that I dared to fight him after. Thanks so much for tolerating my American-ness. Honorable mention to Ben too! Drizzy_Dan - Hey softie, how about letting me get that Beat-A-Mod award? You're one of the friendliest people I know, and you've been there since Day One, even if we weren't always tighter than the jeans on a fat girl. You're a fun guy to be around, so be proud of that. Can't hold all that aggression inside you for long, D_D. Self Destruct - You are arrogant, talented, and devilishly handsome, which somehow makes for just the right combination for a good friend. Plus, you love Gears of War, so you're automatically amazing! Thanks for the numerous nights of fun, and the countless deep voiced, "Wut"s. They made me chuckle. Jack of Harts - The art dude, you make my art, what more can I say? You even made the art for this post, which I thank you for. Even though you were incompetent at making Weekly News Wrap-Up banners, you are still a funny guy and an amazing friend. Let's go kick Crota's arse. We can bring Yang along. Halo5 Follower - Lewis :3 My aussie friend, despite not being around for playdates much, you're a really nice guy. Like really really nice, tone it down a bit mate. I'm being sarcastic obviously, you're a really good guy and I cannot wait for the Forum PAX 2016 Trip so we can meet up and make fun of Jack. Until then, you're in my heart. ESO is coming, I promise. AhhOldWoman - Newbie, greenie, FNG, whatever they're calling you folks these days. Even with the dry spout in terms of new blood, you've shown through as a really fun fantastic guy (or woman heh). I look forward to more fun gamenights on Halo. Bnus - Bnus, how's the YouTube page going? Heh, I'm yanking your chain, you've done a lot in your position to make the site feel awesome, and you're a fantastic friend. Even though you're new, and you still have a lot to learn, you've certainly taught me a few things. You're also the best demonstration on how to accidentally have a child I've ever seen, so good on ya. Maybe next time we're in the Florida area together, we can meet, talk gaming, etc. I'll see ya around. #TARGETACQUIRED Azaxx - Heya, Azaxx. The other Aussie in the equation. So, what have you done to land a spot on here. To be completely honest, I have no damn clue. You're a good guy, you love Destiny, and you've never done wrong by me. I suppose that's enough, but maybe there's more I don't realize. Anyways, stay classy man. Let's raid some time. We'll drag Yang and Jack along. Fishy - Hey Fishy, how are ya? Good to hear. Listen, you're a fantastic person, and you've always been a really fun guy to play Xbox with. Continue to improve yourself and sharpen your abilities. Your talents as a game night host are unparalleled, I'd like to see you continue to strive for the goals that are so easily achievable with your skillset. I'll see ya on GTA, mate. GermanShepherdD - Hey GSD, I'm sure you have no clue who I am besides my violent torrents and rages on GTA V, but thanks for the fun nights and thanks for being a cool mod. And also changing my name like 70 times! Ruff ruff! Zelda - The Legend of Link herself, you're probably the coolest chick I've met on this site. You actually play Destiny quite decently and made for a few fun shoutbox conversations. I hope to see you around more here and on Destiny, because I'd like to play a few matches of Trials with you and test your 'skill' there. Unease P34nut - Hey nutterbutter, you're welcome for that dare that got you where you are. I hope to see a few more articles from you before you fully disappear. Thanks for being a fun gent to hang out with and a cool guy. I'll crush yer nuts, mate. RedStarRocket91 - Best I saved this one for last. This is probably going to be long, gents, so prepare yourself. Red... Go grab some popcorn, I suppose. You've been here longer than I have, and have taught me quite a few things that still benefit me today. Your continued support inspired me to reach where I am and hone my writing skills allowing me to carve my future into history. I hope to someday achieve a success that will not make me famous, or my works, but rather inspire others to press on and create a better world. That's how you truly live forever. You've also taught me that my mistakes don't make me the person I am, but rather how I do my best to prevent those mistakes from ever happening again. Denying their existence does nothing to ensure perfection, rather, you've given yourself the compass as to how to correct it and sculpt the perfect character. Yes, I know not all of that was your lessons, despite their worth, but I felt it was important to convey that your words helped me reach these conclusions. I've been here three years, and it's been a hell of a ride. I wouldn't change it for the world. Thanks Red, I wouldn't still be here if it weren't for you. I raise my glass to you, you ginger-haired Scottish legend, you. So... Three years? That's pretty amazing, in my opinion. But, none of it would be possible without you, yes you. You sitting behind a keyboard and mouse and TV screen. Whether your in the same state, or in entirely different countries, you matter. Now, this year, I lost a lot of my friends, with graduation. People that meant a lot to me, more than I could ever describe. I'm going to miss them, but in a lot of ways, you guys are the closest memories I have of them. Each of you has a distinct personality trait that seems to magically coincide with my own close friends and family. I don't know how, or why, this is, but it's that way for a reason. This site is more than some dudes playing Halo, it's a community. Whether we get noticed by big game companies or not doesn't matter. What matters is the unity we have, even when there are disagreements, and hate, we always thread back together. Even though many of my oldest friends are gone, in the darkness, I have found light in a few new ones. I wouldn't give it up for anything. A wise man once said, "Laughter is not at all a bad beginning for a friendship, and it is far the best ending for one." And you have all certainly made me laugh. This isn't the end, rather, it's the closing page to a chapter in our long book. It's time to turn the page, we must continue to read on.
  3. Hello everyone, It is I, Fishy. I am here to present to you today, my work in progress on a map named Clastic. The original idea was to forge a map for Yoshi's event, Tacos at the Canteen. However, we had troubles. I was off doing my own thing. When all of a sudden Yoshi liked the idea I was doing, and discarded the Canteen idea. We started off small on the map, worked our through. We are going to make as close as we can to an Invasion map. Featuring the objective, territories. Setup to the point of being 1-sided territories. Where one team defends, the other attacks. This map will be featured at our upcoming event. (TBA), I will get you the specifics in the future. Enjoy! Map is complete, took a total of about 10 hours to make. I'll even throw in the story for it. "This island was once abandoned. Previously occupied by Insurrectionists and used as a small outpost. This island was at peace. Time has come, a small UNSC force has been sent to claim the island. The settlement must be destroyed and reclaimed under the hands of the UNSC. Except, something went wrong. The Insurrectionists were guarded with an AA turret, taking down the UNSC's pelicans. Whatever is left from the crash is still up for use, others are all lost. The center of the island is guarded by a massive EMP Pylon on top of a tower, ticking away at an unknown timer. Who knows when the next trigger is pulled. It's up to you to take out the Insurrection. Do your best, soldier." And last but not least, the terrible render of the overview of the map. Objectives don't light up, as well as weapons and other things that light up. However, you can see a few objectives in some of the images. If not, all of them are there. The map and game mode is on my file share. It's a typical Invasion-like game mode, but not to its 100%. Enjoy! GT is L Fishy L Here's a quick video of the Neutral Base and the EMP Bomb all in one! https://account.xbox.com/en-US/gameclip/d9560e72-387b-4b3a-b369-0c7a15ddb04b?gamertag=l%20Fishy%20l&scid=77290100-225e-4768-9373-98164430a9f8
  4. Hello everyone, welcome to my Top Ten Best Games of 2014, it’s that time of the year again. While this year was (for a lot of generic people) a disappointing year, I personally saw it as a… disappointing year. Yeah, not a lot of great gems this year, but with all the delays hopefully 2015 will be a bit better. However, there were still some beautiful games this year, so let’s talk about them! Number 10! Number 9! Number 8! Number 7! Number 6! Number 5! Number 4! Number 3! Number 2! Number 1! That above was my list, some honorable mentions that didn't quite cut the list but are still great include Forza Horizon 2, Assassin's Creed Rogue, Infamous: Second Son, and basically anything on a Wii U because the Wii U's entire library is fantastic and I do not own it yet which makes me angry. So what's your list? What made you feel the most happy about purchasing a console this year? Let me know down below, I'd love to hear, I'll see ya'll next time for the worst of the year!

If you can't join, please tell me, and I'll remove your name from the list and open a spot for joining. 3: When the time comes I will be lurking in the Shoutbox to invite people, and after everyone's in I will launch the game-night... and the shenanigans will begin!

  8. Bip. Bap. Bam- WAIT! Wrong game! We're not doing ODST just yet! Whoops. Anyway, me and Self Destruct have teamed up to form THE BEST DUO EVER (don't quote me on that) and we've begun our long (short) and enduring (horrible) partnership with one of my favorite RTS games Total War Rome II! Wait... It's not TW Rome II? We don't do PC playdates? What the hell is that crap! Anyway, HALO WARS. We'll be playing Sunday the 21st, or maybe a different time depending on if SD says it's okay, I never discussed times. From about 1pm-3pm, so three hours or whatever, it may go longer, don't quote me on that either. Halo Wars is 6 people so once we reach the six person cap, I'm sorry but you'll have to wait for someone to drop out before you can join in. Now some rules that Self Destruct approved (not). 1. Have fun and RUSH ALL THE BASES! 2. If you berate or attack another member, I do not care what the reason is, you will be booted swiftly and possibly reported on-site if the attack is severe enough. 3. Cursing is permitted so long as it isn't derogatory toward a member or any group of people or places, and you don't curse in every word you say. 4. No talking behind a member's back, neither myself or SD will tolerate it, you will be booted swiftly. 5. If you show up late, your spot belongs to the next person, I'm sorry but I want to fill up and we can't wait two hours for you, however there will likely be more spots open later, so you'll have to endure a short wait I'm afraid. 6. If I hear P34nut do that stupid sound he did last time I will flip out. I promise you I will flip out to insane degrees. 7. If anyone mentions Frozen I have the right to slap you in the face. (6 and 7 were lies. Okay not 6.) Memba List: 1. Edward Kenway 2. Self Destruct 3. Butch Flowers 4. rrhuntington -CANCELLED- 5. Bnus 6. Yang Xiao Long JOIN UP YOU BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE! Update: We are now full, you can still however sign up, just expect a delay UNLESS we get 6 more members, in which case I will assign one of them to start a separate lobby that day.
  9. Hello everyone, as you know I'm Edward Kenway, the fictitious pirate who probably only exists in your imagination (and the hearts and minds of children everywhere). I'm bringing you yet another event, not as soon though on a game that we never really got far off the ground on when it came to hosting playdates. Some of you may not know, but we have a crew for GTA V on the forum, here, we hosted a few playdates then did nothing ever again... I'm serious. Well, it's been almost 1 year since the game's launch, and I figure let's host a playdate on the anniversary! Which is the 17th... A wednesday... So it's on the 6th, a Saturday. You may be asking why not the 13th, the saturday during the week of the anniversary. Anything after the ninth (Destiny FTW) is impossible, because Destiny FTW. You'll need Gold (obviously), and to be in the crew, but I'll take your word for it. We're gonna go in, do some random activities, robberies, and burn down the place. It'll be fun, I promise. The entry fee is $10, however you have no way of giving me the $10 up front, so I'll take your word for it that you will pass it to me some other way. It'll take place at 2:00PM EST, see ya then lads. Eddie out. P.S. I actually wrote the banner as 'Mayh3m' on instinct and then had to redo it. Thanks Mayh3m. Peeps coming to the event: 1. Edward Kenway (Me) 2. -Sparky- 3. Coldfreeze 4. Unease P34nut 5. Mr. Biggles 6. Skummgummigubbe 7. DarkAngel 8. D-38 Boss
  10. Hello everyone, and thanks for clicking this thread! I'd like to start off by saying thank you all for an amazing two years on this site! It's all been a blast, good or bad times, and I wouldn't take back any of it! I've made some fantastic friends and had memorable times with all of you, and I want to wish you all the best of luck in any venture you do in the future, as I'm sure you wish to me. I'll start off by giving a small biography of me. My name is Vincent Joseph [insert Italian Surname Here], since I'm not giving you my last name heh. I was born on July 6th, 2001 (One day before Bungie Day dammit!) and am currently only 12, the youngest staff member ever elected and the youngest MoM ever initiated. I go to a Catholic school, but I myself am an Atheist, however I'm a very tolerant person! My favorite video game(s) of all time is a very odd scenario, as the position of favorite is held by two games, Halo 3 and The Last of Us. Since I couldn't choose between either, I just put them both there. Other franchises I love include Mass Effect, Bioshock, Assassin's Creed, Metro, Fallout, The Elder Scrolls, Dishonored, Far Cry, The Sims, Watch_Dogs, Borderlands, and the list goes on and on and on and on. I currently own a PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Wii, and a PC, but I do plan on purchasing an Xbox One and a Wii U. As can be seen, I am a multi-platform gamer, I don't swear allegiance to Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, or Valve, I love them all and want to experience what all four have to offer. I'm not a big film guy, but my favorite film is The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, with close favorites like Pacific Rim and The Wolf of Wall Street. My favorite book is The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and I love the film adaption as well, even though I expected not to. I started out joining the site as SpartanKIL and a slue of other names, but for now, let's use my current name. So I started off as Edward Kenway and did very little to 'help' the forum out or even participate. Long story short, I lost my account, came back in 2013, and started doing Roleplaying. I had a few friends, few who I cared about truly and fewer still of those who are still here. Some notable ones are Ledgend1221 and AIGamerGirl, who I rarely contact anymore but they seem to be still here. Anyways, a metamorphosis happened and I became Edward Kenway! More roleplaying ensued and I discovered Skype... A horrible move by me, and I began doing most of my roleplaying there and most of my troublemaking headbutts in the Shoutbox with mods here. There, I soon began dating an ACTUAL MEMBER here, who I won't name for legal reasons (not really, just too lazy to look her up). Our relationship crumbled soon after, and we stopped talking. She also left the forums, and to my knowledge, never came back. It was hard on me at first, but I grew over it. After that I had nothing really left, and took it out on the forum, which got me a total of two warning points within two weeks time, during two baaaaaad weeks time, as I was having real life troubles. I had an epiphany having two weeks without a shoutbox, and I did something I never thought I'd do. I stopped. I wasn't rude, I wasn't boastful, and I wasn't overreactive and easily irritated. I didn't let little things get to me, and I did a complete 180. I began working for the forum, rather than against it, doing news articles, my first being a Destiny Drawing Board article, that I don't like to admit is my own considering it was mainly copy/pasted. I did very few copy/pastes during my time here, and as time went on I was approached by Cooliest, who gave me tips and for that I was immensely grateful. As I did more and more articles and attended more and more playdates and interacted more and more in the shoutbox, one February morning I had discovered something, something that I think changed me. I woke up, saw that there was a Shoutbox link for the new MoM, but I didn't look at it, no, I stopped for a second, and said 'Hello?' in the shoutbox, and the breath was knocked out of me. Edward Kenway, not just regular Edward Kenway but Edward Kenway, I, was MoM! I had no reaction but surprise. I clicked the thread and... Admittedly, teared up at Red's words, reading down to see all of your words, it made me so overjoyed to see this, and I was actually accepted universally on the forum, I was part of something big, and I had a big part in it... Nothing could get better, right? I kept on my usual thing, doing news, making friends, attending playdates, and being typical Edward, when RedStarRocket91 himself offered me a chance to do something more. He had asked that I join the News Group, where all I could do was smile for a minute. I called my best friend up (who isn't on the forum) and told him the news, and he congratulated me on the position. I gladly accepted, and the next day, I became Edward Kenway, the goal I had aimed for for a very, very long time. It was amazing, and nothing could change it, that's what I had hoped, right? Then... I took a dip down the mountain, a dip that I didn't return from. An altercation with an old-time member here as well as fellow Staff over Skype (that bloody thing gets me in all the trouble doesn't it?) caused me to get what I never hoped to get again... A warning point. I was devastated in myself, that I had done wrong. I immediately sent a PM to Red, not an angry PM, not an defensive PM, an apologetic PM. I was angry alright, at myself, that I let it get like this after I had told myself it never would. I was disappointed in myself, for doing what I did, and for disappointing Red, who, with the kindness of his heart, told me he truly wasn't disappointed in me, and I believed him, hell I still do. But, the past is in the past now, it needs to stay that way. Anyways, a little bit about family life then? I have two sisters who are utterly nothing like me at all, my mum, and my dad, as well I live with my grandfather from Italy (how I picked up some Italian) and my uncle and aunt who I never see because they never leave their home. They're okay I guess, I don't hate any of 'em, just rarely interact with them, especially with my dad in the hospital (getting out soon, yay!). Before I get into my Q&A asked by the wonderful members I'd like to thank some people. My best friend Anthony, dude, you're a massive pain, but you've always been there and gotten me up, thank you. Mach10Creation, or just Janay to me, you're a stellar friend/rival, and I look forward to you breaking my arm next year, see ya then. Bnus, man, you're the most insane person I know, in a good way, thanks for sticking with me though bro, couldn't be here without you. RedStarRocket91 and Absolute Dog, thank you for serving as moderators here on this great forum, and for being pillars and supports to help me reach where I am now with your own examples. And Azaxx, because he blackmailed me to get here or I'd be banned (jk). If you aren't on here, that doesn't mean you didn't help me, but it means I'm running out of time and I'll add you later. "What is your career goal/ if you are going to go to college what do you want to major in?" ~Yoshi1176 I really like this one, so I put it first. My career goal is to go into Journalism somewhere, either on the field or from a writing standpoint, as I dislike the idea of sitting at a desk all night and reporting shootings. Either I'm hands on with the shootings, or I write the newspaper article on them. Gaming Journalism is a field I would ADORE to get into, but I feel it wouldn't give enough profit for me to live on unless I worked at like IGN. Also, I will go to College and I would like to major in Journalism, as well I hope to do so for the Sciences and History related fields, as those I do expertise in as well. Thanks for the question Yoshi! "How Can Mirrors Be Real If Our Eyes Aren't Real" ~JLMeteorYokoShowerWhateverHisNameIsThisWeek The simple fact is that our eyes ARE real, but Mirrors can be holographic projections or optical illusions given the case and depending on the factors. Did I really need to put JL's name there to know it was him? Not in the slightest. Thanks for the question JL! "Are we in a relationship? Like seriously I want to know" ~Connor Kenway If you mean as a family, yes, considering you are my grandson. If not, ew. Thanks for the question Connor! "Are you purple?" ~Ardent Prayer Are you colorblind? "Why do you fail so much?" ~Ledgend1221 Failure is not an option when you're with OPTIMUS PRIME! ROLL OUT AUTOBOTS. "How do you want to further your site career?" ~Anonymous I plan on continuing to do what I do day in and day out, news and shoutbox, and I don't plan on stopping for a looooong time. "What game are you looking forward to most in 2014?" ~Anonymous That is a difficult question, I have to say Destiny, but I also want the MC collection and LBP3 badly. Well, that's about all I had planned today. Thank you all so much for these past two years, I hope to see another successful two in the future, and to go into Infinity! I care about all of you deeply, and I wish you all the best going into Fall of 2015 and beyond! Peace! P.S. I wanted to make this my 1,000th post, but I forgot and by the time I realized it was too late. P.P.S Creds to Austin for the banner!
  11. So I have a small predicament for my own birthday in July... On the sixth... Right before Bungie day... Aren't I a lucky one?! But that's not the point, my whole problem is there are a total a 4 games I have in mind to buy... Everything else was delayed or cancelled, it's terrible. I had no money in the first place but now I have little money with nothing to spend it on. So I'd like YOU the people to suggest me some games that would be amazingpendoustacularsome for me. I won't list off all the games I have in my collection so suggest whatever floats your boat, old or new. Keep in mind though I own a PS4... The console with a total of 3 exclusives with only 1 of them decent. And I own a PS3 as well, I've pretty much discontinued my 360 and don't own a One yet. Suggest platforms, games, accessories, whatever the hell floats your boat as I said. Current games on my list -confirmed that is- I don't want someone going into the comments saying, "Oh yoloswag Watch_Dogs is so last gen 420p on Brickstation2 it sucks so much yo Minecraft 4 life; xOuya master race969696x". Your reputation with me will be tarnished forever, believe me. Bnus, I'm looking at you.
  12. It's been about 5 months since one of these has come out and I'm ecstatic I got to finish one. This member was bound to get an interview with his passion for gaming news, his rise to MoM, and his story of how he turned over a new leaf. Guys put em together for Edward Kenway! DD: "Edward Kenway, it's good to have you for an interview especially with your newly achieved status here on the site. But before we get into that I wanna talk more about you before you were the MoM and before you were even Edward Kenway. Edward, some people in the community are familiar with you as OMEGA from not too long ago. Also, a lot of people don't know this but you've been here for quite a long time but didn't become active until just last year. What kept you waiting so long and what sparked your interest all of a sudden?" EK: "Well actually, you're correct Drizzy, I have been here quite a while. I joined up around June of 2012, and was here for a bit as your average member on the forums. After a few months, I lost my account on here, as I logged out and my e-mail got hacked, so I couldn't log back in, and I was really bad with passwords at the time. I regained my account when I popped back in around the beginning of 2013, and logged in by Facebook. A decision I regret now, I started getting into the Role-playing scene. During that time, I kind of laid low on the forums, not really 'contributing' per say. Fast forwarding a bit, since a helpful Community Moderator named Church and a close friend in Communications named Bnus began talking to me, I realized what I was doing was wrong, and pulled a 360. I decided to attempt what I'm skilled at, and work on reporting on News for the community. A certain MoM actually really inspired me to aim a bit higher as well, I remember when he was wearing the pink back in the Summer, I think that was the spark that attempted to convince me to join a better crowd, and attempt a better opportunity." DD: "Well you certainly have a knack for finding some great news. I make sure to put one of yours in the Wrapup when I can. When you started posting news, did you think MoM would ever be attainable in your future?" EK: "The idea passed around in my head but I always kind of shrugged it off, my goal wasn't ever to get an award, I just loved posting news, and, evidently, that got me noticed by some staff members like yourself. But no, when I began posting, I never really imagined myself in the position, my heart almost discharged out of my chest when I read my name on that post, because I was so in shock that I got it." DD: "It was truly deserved Edward and I can only imagine the excitement! So since OMEGA is in your past now and you are now Edward Kenway, does it bother you when members continue to call you OMEGA?" EK: "Sometimes it does bring me back to my past, which is what bothers me, not the members who do it. I still regret my past, and try to leave it behind, and usually that name pushes my actions back in my face again. It's incredibly alarming when someone looks at you with the knowledge of your mistakes and your fears. But, I realize it's gotten attached to me though, so the best thing I can do is remember what I did, and prevent it from bubbling up to the top again. But I never really cared what people called me honestly, it even says it on my About Me." DD: "That's a great way to think about it. It's not like any members are trying to disrespect you with it and I feel like you definitely understand that. Does becoming MoM give you bigger goals that you want to achieve for this site in the future?" EK: "Oh yes, definitely, I don't plan on stopping at MoM. I'll still do articles each and every day, still do Events when I can, and still defend the forums the best I can, even long after my MoM title is gone. In the process of doing that, I've set up my own personal goals, to eventually reach to far lengths on the forums. I always admired the now gone Absolute Dog and his status on the site. He was absolutely legendary, known far and wide on here, maybe even more than Twam. It's a high goal, but you set goals not just to reach them, but to gain new skills with them. A goal is much less if it is not a difficult expectation. People don't expect you to reach it, which is what makes the glory when you finally get to it so much sweeter. Which is why I'm aiming as high as AD's status." DD: "How very ambitious of you. So you're looking a possibly long career on this site! So Edward, do you feel you have obligations to the site as its MoM? If so, do you feel like we're expecting something of you as a Community or are you expecting something from yourself as our site's MoM?" EK: "The obligations I feel I have are the same as though I was a normal member, I simply attempt to follow the rules and put out daily content that the community enjoys, really nothing else. Being a MoM didn't bring any "weight" on to me if that's what you're wondering, it's the same, just a different shade on my name. I simply believe that the community (and myself) expects what it normally would, to be a good member." DD: "That's great Edward! And I've noticed you haven't let up at all which shows great dedication. When you get news, what types of articles pique your interest?" EK: "Well, I usually judge by community interest. I started out doing all types of articles back in, I'd say November or December, and then narrowed it down a bit. Really I look for what the community enjoys and reads, which, at the moment, is Titanfall, which is why I post a lot of Titanfall articles. Xbox One articles also get quite a few views, so I do post them regularly as well. It's not really what piques my interest, though that does play a part in it. For example, the recent article about the CEO of Microsoft stepping down, and someone else replacing him, I had seen about a day beforehand, but I wasn't all that interested in it, so I left it to our news group to do, despite the fact I knew it would be popular news among those in the community. I go by articles that are both interesting to me and to the community. I am very interested in Titanfall, despite the fact some think I dislike the game, which I don't, It does look like a cool concept, so since I am interested in Titanfall and so are the majority of users, I will post a lot of Titanfall articles near release." DD: "Catering to your community is what makes for great news Edward and I like that. That's what I try to do with the Wrapups. They can't be serious all the time, our community loves fun and jokes and laughter! Speaking of fun, what are some of your hobbies besides being our MoM?" EK: "Real life hobbies? Well, I'd have to say I do enjoy writing poetry and doing video editing if that counts, haha. I never really do "outdoor" activities. I do enjoy free-running and parkour though, still a novice in that field. My hobbies on the site are pretty much the same lol. Write news, edit videos, work on photos, and just chat. That's really it for me, I have few hobbies compared to most." DD: "Few hobbies but some pretty challenging ones. None of those things are really easy in my opinion. Edward I've noticed that even though you've been writing articles on the site for some months now, they've actually changed a bit. Have you had any help or guidance when writing your articles?" EK: "Actually, yes. I received a Personal Message from the news group member TheCooliestOne telling me he wanted to share the guidelines with me, as well as just give some tips. Then Red actually shared some guidelines with me as well to help out. Both really did an awesome job and I know they're trying to improve my skills." DD: "Like I said, it's showing. And I'm glad you're still putting articles out there even after The Pink Age of Piracy. I know it must be a little bittersweet going from minus green to the sophisticated silver color but what does this mean for your news articles? Will we still be seeing an Edward Kenway piece as often?" EK: "Of course, in fact, I expect double the articles now! When I was MoM, I had a lot of events going on my life as well as on the forums that got in my way. Now, I'm for the most part clear, so I expect instead of the maybe 6 articles a week, about 9-12 a week! Plus, a lot more news has been going on that I've been dying to cover, so expect quite a bit these coming months." DD: "Wow that's a lot. Let's hope your new doesn't get stolen again while you're at school! I certainly look forward to that and I'm glad to hear you won't be declining. So Edward, it's that time now. Time to finish up the interview with this Star of the Community. Edward Kenway, what words of advice or tips do you have for members who wish to seek and write articles the way you do?" EK: "Well, if you're looking to get into writing articles, just know this: Anyone with a passion can write the article, I myself have never taken a single professional writing class, and rather I study the topic that I'm writing about! No matter what age you are, no matter what your writing or grammar is like, if you have the passion to do it, you can! You just have to believe in yourself! That sounded corny, but it's true. If you're having further troubles, ask for some advice from a member of the News Group! Thanks for having me Drizzy_Dan!" No thank YOU Edward for participating. It feels good to get one of these back up again. More interviews with more special members are on the way so don't you fret! I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did. PEACE.
